. great to have elizabeth vargas here. >> great to be here. >> it will be warm in washington today, but that high-stakes stalemate is not getting any better. that fiscal cliff, just 29 days until everyone's taxes go up and the white house and congress are absolutely deadlocked right now. >> both sides seeming farther apart than ever. both sides saying, it's your turn to blame. we'll see what happens. >>> also this morning, startling video. it's a little tough to watch but it is okay. it's a prank by a television host setting this magician's hair on fire. now, the magician is okay. he's recovering in the hospital. >> wow. >> what? >> but he is accusing the host of that show of a criminal act. looking at that videotape, it's hard to believe this was any kind of a stunt, as the host claims. >> hard to believe he's okay. >> thank goodness he's okay. >>> wow, also ahead on the show. very special guest today. heidi klum is with us live. here's what she was up to this weekend. looking so glorious. you remember that was supposed to be her halloween costume. hurricane sandy put it on hold a
each other for the breakdown. abc's jonathan karl has all this from washington. all of the focus on speaker john boehner's fallback plan, what he is calling plan "b." >> reporter: that's right, george. talks have got son low, i would say this is the low point, that boehner is moving ahead with the backup plan that the president so opposes, he says he will veto. under plan "b" most of the tax cuts will be extended for those making over $1 million. for those over $1 million, the tax rates would go up. this could do nothing to address the issues. like spending cuts and the debt ceiling. democrats are calling this vote a waste of time. but, george, boehner is saying the president has a choice. support this plan or see a massive tax increase on virtually all americans after january 1st. >> yeah, they seem to think this is going to put the pressure back on the white house. but, jon, like you, i've been in touch with both sides overnight. and these talks right now are going absolutely nowhere. the chance that the country is going to go over that fiscal cliff are really rising. >> report
be back in washington when congress reconvenes tomorrow. and they can try once again to negotiate a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff by the end of the year. just about every american family will see their taxes increase on january 1 unless a deal is reached. but lawmakers are expressing very little optimism so far. meantime, the president spent christmas in hawaii, visiting a local marine base, thanking more than 100 troops and their families for their service. >>> and this morning, the taliban is claiming responsibility for a suicide bombing at a major u.s. base in eastern afghanistan. three afghans, including a guard at camp chatman were killed in today's explosion. >>> and back here at home, former major league baseball player andruw jones is free on bond this morning. he was arrested near atlanta early christmas morning on a battery charge, after police responded to a call about a domestic dispute with his wife. >>> and netflix, they are apologizing for a christmas outage in its video streaming service. yes, it happened on christmas, a little untimely. it took ten hours to resolve the

. and we can only hope, learned a lesson in the process. >>> and this one's for you, george. as washington man, the gridlock, at least congress doesn't look like this. take a look. nothing gets george like a good parliament stepto. members of the ukrainian parliament couldn't decide who they wanted their next chairman to be. so, of course, this is actually, perhaps, in the bylaws. you fight it out. >> usually, that's taiwan. >> it is more exciting than a thumb war. one guy, yes. it did look like he was trying to crowd surf. we've obviously seen chairs thrown. but not today. perhaps progress, if only incremental. >> boy. let's hope it doesn't come to that in washington. >>> we have a different story here, though. >> we have some chilling, new details about the gunman who went on a shooting spree at an oregon mall earlier this week. we are learning more about the shooter from his ex-girlfriend. abc's neal karlinsky is in portland, oregon, with the very latest on this. neal, good morning. >> reporter: amy, good morning. that's right. we now know a lot more about the shooter this morning. we k
a real cliffhanger. members of the house are now leaving washington, now that a republican plan offered by house speaker john boehner, called plan b, was put aside. it simply did not have enough support to pass. boehner's plan would have raised taxes on those earning more than $1 million a year. after pulling the bill, boehner said it's now up to president obama and the senate to find a way to avoid the cliff. so there's no way to get a plan through the house based on republican support. that is the political lesson from this. but the day before, they said this is going to pass and then yanked it because the support in that chamber was not there. so i don't know quite where it goes from here. no one does. and now it's time for christmas break. so they get back and have less than a week to get something done before january. >> and the president isn't going to hawaii now, right? >> the last i heard, it was still up in the air. you can't imagine he would have a vacation now. or any of them shouldn't have a vacation now. but we don't know. so cliff hanger is the right word for sure. >>> now
